Are you Diary of a Wimpy Kid Fan?

This Hub is a tribute to the commercial success of the stories of Greg Heffley, or better known as the Wimpy Kid. My kids are big fans of Greg Heffley. My eldest boy have all the books in the series, excluding the latest edition, "The Long Haul." They've also seen all the Wimpy Kid movies, with Greg's brother, Rodrick Heffley being their favorite character. I managed to purchase one of the popular Wimpy Kid board games, namely The Cheese Touch Board Game, but this seems to be not such a big hit with them. Please read further for an overview of the latest two books, as well a short overview of some of the popular Wimpy Kid products.

Could it be that Kinney is the new Herge and Greg the Tintin of the 21st century?

Long Live Greg Heffley and his creator Jeff Kinney!

Therapy for the young!

The ideal book to get your youngster to read!

I've been struggling with my 8 year old with regards to motivating him to read by himself. He had this fear of reading, that not even his teacher could explain to me. He had built up such a resistance against reading that I felt completely hopeless. By fate he got introduced to these books by a friend (one that loves reading!). This ignited the spark that his teacher and I have been waiting for. He got absolutely addicted to the books, as well as the movies. He went from being an unsure reader to a confident young boy that has got no problem, reading in front of an audience.

All of this would not have been possible, if it was not for the geniality of Jeff Kinney. By his straightforward simple way of introducing a story to the young ones he is pulling readers into the wonderful world of the English literature. There are thousands of kids (and their teachers and parents) whose lives have been touched by Jeff Kinney.

This series of books have become such a phenomenon that it has created a whole industry of fan products. I've shared a small summary of the most popular ones on this Hub.

In the latest installment of the popular series, released November 2014, Greg and his family go on a road trip, leading to many hysterical events. This is a good read for adults and kids. Jeff Kinney put a lot of effort into this book and it is definitely one of the best in the series.

The second last edition to the series was released early November 2013. In this book Greg is finding life very difficult. His friend Rowley has broken off the friendship and finding friends seems to be a difficult struggle. Things however are ready for a change. Let me however not over share!

      All the kids in my class love these books. In Holland it's called "Leven (life) of a loser" but a wimpy means something else I thought?

      My 11 year old daughter just loves these books, and movies, and anything related. We bought the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Box Set last year through scholastic at her school. That might be a neat item to add to this page.
